Welcome to the Health and Physical Education Department

The South Kingstown High School's Physical Education department provides an environment where each student will acquire the skills and knowledge necessary to understand the relationship of physical well being to long-term health. Learner's individual needs are satisfied through all forms for physical activity. Students learn to explore, discover and solve problems through movement and establish relationships between physical activity, body function and structure, and the mental aspects of judging time, distance and spatial relationships. Physical education provides a unique setting for sharing ideas, relieving stress, learning cooperatively, and enjoying a wide variety of activities. Through physical education, students will learn to develop respect, responsibility and citizenship in a diverse society.

The Health Department’s goal is to develop lifelong skills that will enable our students to establish healthy adult lifestyles characterized by making sound decisions concerning health and wellness.

In Physical Education, students are provided with a well-rounded curriculum with a plethora of activities that include cardiovascular fitness, eye/hand coordination, problem solving, and lifetime sports. Through both health and physical education, we feel we are giving students the tools to continue a healthy and fit lifestyle.
